In the recent overpressure with the hornady factory ammo there was a rather interesting side effect I noticed on the bolt carrier--the extractor was slightly bent in and down (definitely happened after the firing of the particular cartridge). I've noticed in other bulged and failed cases that there was a bending down of the rim in the area of the extractor (as I had mentioned before). I'm now thinking the cartridge possibly went into battery with the rim in front of the extractor.
